    Funny how you attack the left for not denouncing left-wing violence and proceed to engage in verbal gymnastics instead of denouncing right-wing violence.

    Even Trump is smarter than this.
    Absolute silence when it was discovered the terrorist who killed 6 in the Quebec shooting was a White supremacist. But he jumped on the Louvre attack, where no one died, almost immediately.


    Lewk just doesn't know when to shut up.

    Do you think police action is right wing violence? Do you think riots should be allowed to occur?

    A right-winger said the police should start shooting protesters to put some fear into them. Do you agree?

    Riots are bad. Killing people is worse.

    No charges filed, so nothing was found, just that the police don't believe there was enough evidence to bother moving forward with charges. Last I heard about the victim he was still in the ICU.

    I disagree (and thought I made it clear) that protesters shouldn't be shot. Rioters should be shot.

    And I completely disagree with the idea that killing *criminals* is worse than riots. Public order has value, you should be able to walk the streets in safety in America and not be randomly assaulted for wearing a red cap.

    You think killing a bunch of protesting students contributes to public order? Is that what happened after Kent State?

    We aren't talking about Kent state - it was clearly an analogy and one that I did say needed to be modified (that mentioned protesters, I said rioters a VERY important distinction) Do you think rioters should be allowed to riot or do you think they should be stopped? I'm not suggesting that the police go in shooting right away, escalating levels of force should be used however in the end if it requires lethal means I'm all for it because no one should ever have the right to riot. It is affront to anyone who values law and order.

    I don't think you know what the word "analogy" means.

    No it was not clearly an analogy. The man flatly declared we should shoot student protestors to teach them a lesson.

    Milo apparently wants to try to give a speech there again. Should be fun.

    I am so fed up already of the phrase "fake news". Politics is all about disagreements but now anything someone disagrees with is "fake news" rather than addressing the issue.

    There are tons of problems with the proposed law as written.

    Turns out the assholes went to the event with established plans to shoot someone, with several witnesses describing the husband as trying to stir up trouble. The wife (shooter) has been charged with first degree and the husband third degree assault.
